to be -- to compromise to the slightest extent and all they did was kick the debt ceiling down the road three months. >> stephanie: yeah, and boehner called his own bluff he said never going to raise it without equal pay cut, and basically he went back on that, and as you said, all he did was kick it down the road for three months. what was the point for him? >> the point was to look like they had some kind of a win because they knew they were in trouble on the debt ceiling, and then put the pressure on somebody else, namely the senate. but they are going to put forth a budget pretty soon that is really going to be an important % contrast for the american people to see. they are going to try to balance the budget in ten years, which you cannot do without slashing medicare and medicaid, and social security. so the american people will get, i think, a very good look at the way republicans want to balance the budget and do deficit reduction and the way democrats do. we actually went through this with paul ryan's budget which was so egregious the leader of his party had to back awa
down the road. they're still playing games with the debt ceiling. that's the bottom line there. in the meantime, representative paul ryan is back in the picture. he is stepping back into the political spotlight. he is now in charge of creating a budget that will eliminate the federal deficit within ten years? paul ryan was the guy who lost the last election because most americans didn't like his budget ideas in the first place. but now ryan claims voters actually didn't reject republican principles. ryan told "the wall street journal" we have to do a better job of explaining why we think our ideas are better for everybody and why they're better for fighting poverty. paul ryan wants us to believe that he can fight poverty, pay off the debt and balance the budget in a new number, now ten years. do you believe that? i got some swampland for you down in florida if you do. let's do some quick math here. analysts say ryan will have to cut about $800 billion in federal spending, including defense. that's 22% of the federal budget. so ryan would have to cut spending by one-fifth in ten
on the debt ceiling. congressman chris van hollen takes us into the funny numbers he had to push. >>> if you want another concord bridge, i got some buddies. >> ted nugent is assembling a moron militia. we'll show you what he is going to be up against. >>> the transaction tax. americans pay it every day on everything we buy. but why doesn't wall street have to pony up? >>> and the latest on the quest for filibuster reform. will the senate actually change the rules and get something done? senator bernie sanders with us tonight. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. if you wanted to know why congress has a record low approval rating, all you had to do was watch the circus on capitol hill today. outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton testified before senate and house committees today about the attack on the u.n. consulate in benghazi, libya. the committee members already have access to the full accountability review board report on the attack, as well as classified intelligence reports. secretary clinton has repeatedly taken responsibility for state department f
consistently said he'd refuse to negotiate around the debt ceiling. his strategy is vindicated now that the republicans have backed off their threats to take the nation into a default. the president stared down the republicans. they blinked. >> ifill: congress still faces other fiscal fights. automatic spending cuts are due to kick in on march first, and funding for the government runs out march 27. so, can the republican party use fiscal issues to regain its footing? for more on the political fights ahead we turn to susan page, washington bureau chief for "u.s.a. today." and stuart rothenberg of the "rothenberg political report" and "roll call." chuck schumer just said the republicans brinked. did they blink, susan, and does it matter if they did? >> i think a big recalbraigz on their part. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in spending. now they said never mind. we'll push that down the road. the big fight will be on the sweeping spending cut
. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in snding. now they said never mind. we'll push that down the road. the big fight will be on the sweeping spending cuts that go into effect march 1 and on the government funding that runs out on march 27. march is going to be the month to watch, and it's a month that could end in a government shutdown. >> ifill: is it the kind of fight the republicans want to have to redefine themselveses? >> i think they do. gwen, i think you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. yes, the republicans folded on this wise wisely. finally, i think they got some smart on this. you have to pick your fights. they need a breather now they'vbeen on the defense f a year on tax cuts for millionaires, on toughness, shutting down the government, they're not going to compromise. they need to recalbright here, a reset button needs to be pushed and it seems like in every aspect of government. and fight on future spending, n
shuttings down the government if they don't raise the debt ceiling there are so many people expecting payments veterans, soldiers, the --. melissa: but they get to decide who they pay and they don't. they could decide to pay those people and -- >> a lot harder, very, very hard to decide who they pay and who they don't. logistics are total nightmare. there are billions upon billions of computerized payments. if you want to code it and figure out how you get money to certain people and not others that sound like a catastrophe. it could happen when they even threatened not to raise the debt ceiling around our credit was downgraded and the markets really tumbled. you don't want to i can take the chance. no way the republicans would take that chance. melissa: maybe you don't. a nit is very risk-averse person? >> in poker a 19 is someone that folds every hand. they wait for the perfect chance to get money in. problem is nits never win tournaments. they have to actually risk something in order to see that value. melissa: who is the nit in this? >> everyone. they're all nits. everyone involve

a debt ceiling bill doing nothing but pushing of the problem until making the can down the road. and new york congressman sat -- has me upset tonight. they're going to want to you this. stay with us. albrecht, he could not be more wrong. ♪ gerri: to people in the south cling to their guns and religion? is that part of the country something we need to ♪ gerri: i have to tell you, nothing, nothing gets under my skin faster than and new yorker calling out the south which is exactly what happened recently in a tv interview. new york congressman telling the most other states should adopt gun laws exactly like the one passed in the state of new york. >> new york, it's a little different and more progressive and a lot of areas and some other states. some of the southern areas of cultures that we have to overcome. gerri: cultures that we have to overcome. all right. i forgot. the south is still a backwater to new york. the region languishes in a post antebellum haze of poverty and backwardness. in truth, my friends, the south has benefited from long-term strategies of keeping out unions and
, but there are decisions that have to be made in the course of 2013 concerning fiscal deficits, concerning the debt ceiling, which is why 2013 is a make or break. >> reporter: if those decisions are postponed again? >> well, it will be pushing the can down the road yet again, which was a reproach that we made against the europeans, and i don't think that the u.s. should fall in that trap. >> reporter: lagarde said governments and legislators can't be allowed to let up or slip back, that we can't go back to business as usual. >> pelley: anthony, thank you very much. democratic senator dianne feinstein of california introduced legislation today to reinstate the federal ban on assault weapons, but she acknowledged that supporters face an uphill battle. nancy cordes is at the top of that hill tonight in washington. nancy. >> reporter: scott, the bill that she and other democrats spruced today is even tougher than the assault weapons ban that congress let lapse back in 2004. this bill would ban the sale of 157 different military-style firearms. flanked by police officers, doctors, and mayors, senator dianne fei
down with maria one day after the gop-led house v e voted to temporarily lift the debt ceiling. >> thanks so much, bill. we are talking economy and politics with representative eric cantor right now, and representative, great to have you on the program. >> great to be here with you. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> let's get right to t.yesterday or this week rather the house passed a debt limit extension until mid-may. what does that buy us? >> well, what is buys us is a time for this debate about borrowing and spending to really develop into what i hope will be a robust discussion that will yield some results. we know that for almost four years the united states senate has not passed a budget, and that's part of the problem that's been contributing to the out-of-control spending in washington, and what we've said is we will extend the debt ceiling for three months to allow time for the united states senate to write a budget so we can then begin the discussions on how we're going to repay this money that we're going to borrow as well as begin to manage down the debt long
. starting with the debt ceiling. 111 democrats voted against raising the debt ceiling. was this all about the no budget no pay provision are the democrats trying to stick it to the g.o.p. >> i think the latter and i think the more constitutionalists among them assuming that they are there that the amendment mattered more to them. but emotionally they probably wanted to make boehner pass this bill with his republicans. you know, in a way don't blame them for that. it's a harmless game. there are harmful games and harmless games. that was a relatively harmless one. obama also supported the passage of this, john, i think that if it had been in danger i think enough democrats would have switched over and voted yes. i think they were just trying to make a point. >> john: that makes me feel better. but let me ask you something the number one criticism from my republican friends has been so budget has been passed. why can't you democrats pass a budget how shameful. how should democrats respond to this? >> well, it is true that they haven't passed a budget. you can say that matters or it doesn't
's going to happen. obviously it means there is a lowering of the temperature around the debt ceiling specifically. it won't be the thing that's going to bring us down to the wire begin. so to me, it is only a few months. still kind of ridiculous we're on this treadmill. >> bill: what will bring us to the wire? is it going to be the sequestration or the budget or both? >> i think the sequestration simply because -- that's a lit us for a. it kicks in. obviously you can defer it one more time. but i do think that's the thing that gets the conversation really moving here because ultimately, everyone confronts as bill clinton might say the arithmetic here. almost all of the spending is built into law it is statutory it is entitlements or it's defense and so those things have to be cut. there is not a way out of this. people look at this saying tax receipts could cover only the absolute essentials here so we have to cut into other things. i'm not -- i think it is a sequester that really does bring people out there and show their hand. >> bill: now the deal -- the bill that the house passed
on the debt ceiling after the house voted to approve a bill to extend the debt ceiling another three months until the 18th of may. the vote to 852144. 111 democrats voting no. also asking the house and senate to approve a budget by the 15th of april. they don't congressional pay could be placed an escrow through late next year. does that sound like music? senate majority leader harry reid says the bill will be voted on in the senate over the coming days. the white house says the president will actually sign it into law. meanwhile, senate budget committee chairwoman saying that her committee will, indeed, draft a budget this year if adopted. the first time that the senate democrats have passed a budget in four years. so in advance to the democrats returning to regular word business, returning government at least in its transition to reality for us all. thank you very much. joining us now, the "a-team". good to have you all year. i have to think that you are about to break out in song. i mean, think about it. an agreement amongst the republicans for a 10-year plan. ryan has taken 30 years out
last week that was a clean no budget no pay piece. i think we should have a clean debt ceiling extension and the fact they coupled it together probably is not how i would have introduced legislation. that said, our job is putting together a responsible budget. that allows the public to see what our priorities are, how we're going to use our tax revenue. and we can do this in a smart way. >> one thing that is going on currently as we speak, the confirmation hearings for john kerry to take over for secretary clinton, and yesterday, it was certainly a big day on the hill for secretary clinton about the benghazi situation. i want to play for everybody what you had to say as well as senator barbara boxer told the secretary of state. >> as a new member of congress, i think i speak for all the freshman that we're not going to get much time to serve with you, but we hope in a few years we'll get that chance to serve again. >> i want to thank you because this is maybe the last time you'll come before us as secretary here. i want to thank you for your advocacy on behalf of women around t
, republicans seem intent on keeping the country's economy as unstable as possible. the house averted the debt ceiling fight. at least some republicans. 33 members of the house gop still broke rank. by averting, we, of course, mean punting the ticking time bomb three months down the road. >> another 90 days away so we can continue to royle this congress, this country, our people, and our economy. >> we should not even be having a debate. it should be no doubt that the full faith and credit of the united states will be honored, and that is what our constitution says. >> the gimmick nature of this whole thing i won't elaborate on, has been done before. >> either way, the passage of this bill has allowed lawmakers to skip from brinkmanship to probably more brinkmanship. looming just over the horizon is a budget battle that could shut down the government and automatic steep spending cuts that could cost thousands of jobs. welcome to the new normal in washington. joining us now from davos, switzerland, is cnbc's squawk box co-host "new york times" columnist and author of too big to fail, andrew ros
. >> more with senator marco rubio. and house nearly three months to raise the debt ceiling. >> look, i understand why they want to move the initiative forward and i think there is some strategicty to the way they're doing it it and i believe the second part the of it it, congress shouldn't get paid unless a budget is passed. no one wants to miss a paycheck certainly, but i think it's a very valid point and i think that it's not unfair to say to the people if you're not going to do your job, you shouldn't get paid. >> greta: and we keep getting these, like goal posts and mile posts and three more months. >> absolutely. >> greta: six more months and another excuse-- >> in fairness, i think it's the house. if they believed they could pass a bill out of house that not only dealt with the debt limit, but with our debt problem and passed out of the senate and signed by the president they would do it in a heartbeat. that's not what they're facing. they want facing a president that wants unconditional limits and the senate hasn't passed a budget in days. i think they're trying to make the best
trillions of dlars in additional budget -- in additional debt ceiling increase and wouldn't be balanced for several decades. let's stop playing games with the form and let's sit down and work on the things we agree upon. i think the american public would support us if we took out tens of billions of dollars of unnecessary spending for redundant nuclear weapons, to reform the scandal that is the crop insurance program that in cents people to plant land that they should not plant and drives up loes. les accelerate health care reform, like we're doing in oregon, that would save over $1 trillion if it were applied nationally. let's get down and do it. act, don't debate. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: thank you, mr. speaker. i yield one minute to a distinguished member of the ways and means committee, the gentleman from nebraska, mr. smith. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. smith: mr. speaker, i rise today in support of h.r. 325. the bill is an important step toward getting our fiscal ho
